Ruff Road Rescue is privately run and reserves the right to refuse any adoption that is not in the best interest of the dog based on our policies and procedures.
Why does it cost money to adopt from a rescue?
When Ruff Road Rescue takes in a dog we incur veterinary costs. Sometimes the costs are minimal, but other times the dogs we take in have significant medical needs. All of our dogs are spayed/ neutered, microchipped, up to date on shots, and wormed before being adopted. All the adoption fees are used to offset the higher medical expenses of other dogs. Many people believe that rescues have connections to free/ low cost vet care, but the reality is, we do not.
Vet Visit = $50.00
Spay/ Neuter = $50-$80
Microchip = $30
Shots = $18 each
(3 puppy shots/ Rabies)
Without the additional donations of the public we would not be able to continue our efforts.
